AMOI appoints chief operating officer

Asset Management One International (AMOI) has appointed Mario De Bergolis as its chief operating officer for the EMEA region. His responsibilities will include setting the strategic direction for all operational functions, with oversight of operations, middle office and systems support departments. De Bergolis joins AMOI from Aberdeen Standard Investments, where he served as the global head of strategy and business management, client & multi-manager solutions. His experience also includes stints at Ignis Hedge Fund of Funds, LGT Vestra and SS&C Globeop. “The appointment of Mario as chief operating officer will be instrumental as we continue to build and develop our EMEA presence, his expertise gained from top-tier establishments will provide fresh insight and will be invaluable in further strengthening our operations and governance functions,” said Toru Yoshibe, chief executive at AMOI. Earlier this month, AMOI bolstered its European team with the appointment of Lora-Ann Chiginsky as director for its EMEA business development division. Chiginsky joined the London-based subsidiary of Japan’s Asset Management One from Nikko Asset Management, where she served as the director for EMEA institutional business development and relationship management.
